Brie Larson is one of the most sought-after actresses in the world, and with an Academy Award already under her belt at just 28-years-old, she’s going to stay among Hollywood’s elite for some time.
While all the sheep have been Jennifer Lawrence stans for the last couple of years, I’ve been quieting representing Team Brie Larson ever since she popped up in 21 Jump Street — yes, the Academy Award-winning actress was Jonah Hill’s love interest in 21 Jump Street — and boy do I look like a genius now (what else is new?). J-Law’s act has become tired and her last few movies have been misses (Joy, X-Men: Apocolypse, Passengers, Mother! & Red Sparrow), while Brie Larson has done nothing but intelligently pick and choose her spots, using the tried-and-true “one for me, one for you” method of selecting projects. Other than Kong: Skull Island, Larson has still mainly appeared in indie flicks since her Academy Award win for Room.
That’s all about to change next year (or this year if some rumors about Avengers: Infinity War are to be believed) when Larson will star in Marvel Studios’ Captain Marvel, a movie that will likely yield Wonder Woman/Gal Gadot-levels of success. And according to her Instagram, not only is Larson bringing her acting edge to the role but a physical one too, as she looks absolutely RIPPED up these days.
And, ya know, in addition to being an excellent actress, she’s quite talented otherwise, as you can see:
There’s still time to ditch the J-Law bandwagon and jump on the B-Lar train if you hurry.
